The compact car segment offers a multitude of options for an everyday car, providing you with peppy performance, innovative technologies, and sporty style. Two options in this segment are the 2019 Honda Civic sedan and the 2019 Toyota Corolla sedan. Here, we examine how these two models stack up against each other to help you determine which one might be a better fit for your lifestyle.
When it comes to what is under the hood, the 2019 Honda Civic offers both more options and power than the 2019 Corolla. The Civic has two engines to choose from depending on your trim level. The standard engine is a 2.0-liter inline-four that produces 158 horsepower and 138 lb-ft of torque. A 1.5-liter turbocharged inline-four is the second engine option, offering a bump in power with 174 horsepower and 167 lb-ft of torque.
The Corolla has a single engine option — a 1.8-liter inline-four that puts out 132 horsepower and 128 lb-ft of torque. This is less power than the Civic’s standard engine.
Both the 2019 Civic and the 2019 Corolla come available with a range of technologies. Each offers a standard safety technology package —Honda Sensing® for the Civic and Toyota Safety Sense-P for the Corolla — designed to increase your confidence behind the wheel. While each model offers multiple safety innovations, the Civic comes standard with a Road Departure Mitigation System (RDMS) and Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow, which the Corolla doesn’t have.*
You will also find connective technologies like USB ports and Bluetooth® connectivity on these two sedans. One thing the Civic offers that the Corolla doesn’t is Android Auto™ smartphone integration. This feature allows Android phone users to mirror their smartphone’s apps, music, and call features directly on the Civic’s touchscreen display. Android users won’t be able to do this with the Corolla.
